Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance is the UK’s only conservatoire of music and contemporary dance education. We also offer opportunities for schools, children and young people to engage in music and dance through exciting and high quality participation programmes, activities and events throughout the year.
Trinity Laban's music Learning & Participation team will work in partnership with Ark Evelyn Grace Academy over the next 2 years to research how cultural organisations can work in partnership with schools to support young people living in challenging circumstances to progress in their music making outside of school. 

Young DaDa Ensemble is the expansion of a successful pilot project to deliver accessible music-based activities to 70 young people in Liverpool over a period of two years. It will present progression routes for aspiring musicians, provide musical role models and help affect organisational change.
